The 12th district, once made up primarily of Columbus and its northeastern suburbs, is the former Congressional district of Ohio Governor John Kasich. In 2011, the district map was redrawn to pick up part or all of 7 counties extending from Mansfield to Columbus, and west to Zanesville. In all, the district is made up of Morrow, Delaware and Licking, and portions of Richland, Marion, Franklin and Muskingum Counties.
According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the 12th district is “wealthier, more highly educated and less diverse than Ohio as a whole” Demographic characteristics include:
|Democrat: Danny O’Connor, 31
|Republican: Troy Balderson, 57
